DTE Energy’s Commercial Lighting Instant Discount Program makes upgrading to energy efficient LED lighting easy, convenient and affordable.

When you want to replace a light bulb in your home with an efficient LED counterpart, you go to your local hardware store and pick one up. The price may feature an instant DTE Energy discount, so you not only conserve energy but save dollars as well.

Now, you can also enjoy instant discounts when you upgrade your business lighting. Simply visit a lighting distributor that participates in the DTE Energy Commercial Lighting Instant Discount Program. A complete list is available at dtecommercialinstantdiscount.com Specialized solutions for business lighting are available, and they come with substantial benefits.

“The DTE Commercial Lighting Instant Discount Program is designed to make it easier for small business owners to upgrade to more-efficient LED lighting,” said Alison Jaworowski, DTE Energy program manager. “There are no forms to complete and no receipts to submit. The price paid for a variety of LED lamps is instantly discounted at participating lighting distributors.”

Now is the perfect time to replace inefficient halogen, incandescent or fluorescent lighting with LED lamps and reduce lighting-related energy costs by up to 90 percent. In addition to being good for your bottom line, replacing inefficient lighting with LED counterparts saves energy, which reduces your carbon footprint. That means it’s good for Michigan and the planet. With discounts applied directly to the purchase price, it’s easier than ever for you to start saving.

Contact Your Local Distributor

To start saving energy and money, you or your electrical contractor should ask your local distributor to show you the LED products and accessories that feature instant savings. Included are 2- and 4-foot LED T8 linear tubes, LED exterior wall packs, LED exterior floodlights, interior occupancy sensors, LED screw-in bulbs and LED retrofit kits. We recommend working with a DTE Designated Trade Ally to ensure any wiring modifications that may be necessary to install some LED products are properly and safely handled.

The instant discounts are applicable only to LED products listed by DesignLights Consortium (DLC®) or by certified by ENERGY STAR®. 

These two organizations are recognized by DTE Energy and others as the gold standard in LED lighting, so buying recommended products ensures you’ll get the best quality and most-efficient LED lighting available.

All DTE Electric business customers in good standing are eligible for this program. Simply provide the distributor with the business address where the installation will take place. “Through the DTE Energy Commercial Lighting Instant Discount Program, customers are enjoying an average 41 percent discount off the regular retail price and have reduced their energy use by 7,252 megawatt hours — approximately the same amount of energy is used to power 940 Michigan homes for a year,” Jaworowski said. “To date, the program has reached 2,300 customers, paid over $740,000 in incentives and discounted over 100,000 units. We encourage all eligible DTE Energy business customers to take advantage of this program. It’s designed to help them save today and for the long term.”
